It's trendy, imo. It's interesting but also glitzy, which seems to be the way Chanel is going of late with the heavy influx of metallic only reissues, the patents. I would have rather they kept the star flap in production, but that's just me.

I love this. I would say it's a classic piece. :tup:
It got everythings:
Classic flap style + woven chain + CC symbol + Gold & Silver (leather?!)

Can't wait to see your modeling photos!

I think it's both :s
The shape is obviously classic and I think the cut outs aren't really even all that trendy.
And although I think metallics are always in I think they're always in as long as they aren't too blingy.
This bag is pretty blingy so IMO it'll come in and back out and back in and back out. . . .

I like it, it's fun!

I like it, but IMO it is trendy. My biggest concern would be how it would hold up over time, with all those different CCs stuck on and the metallic effect, which is more susceptible to rubbing.

i also think it can go both ways. it's looks really fancy, tho', so i would probably only wear for night time events.
